      Hi Jim,
      When I look at Akhal-Teke ads, they refer to one that is 15.2h
      being "short" for an Akhal-Teke, and there are a lot that are
      16h...so :) Go to www.equine.com and do a search on them. I had a
      beautiful Grulla Mustang Gelding myself :) His name is Reno, because
      they caught him in Nv. and sold him out of Reno, and that is where I
      was born and raised :)
